Cleaning Up Phone Numbers With VBA
I am using VBA to enter customer information into a Microsoft SQL database. I have an excel sheet with thousands of customers listed. I will be using a While loop to process each line of the sheet. Part of the While loop needs to make any format changes necessary before the data moves over to the DB. So here is the issue:

How do I turn the following phone numbers:

(410) 273-9200
276 623 4254
410 612 1100 Rob
(413) 786-1636 Cindy
304) 842-5491 Sherry

Into a uniform layout? I would prefer ###-###-####

Each of the numbers above is an example from the list I have. There may be more variations (I have over 20 seperate lists to process, with over 10000 customers per list)

I imagine I need some process that will remove all character except numbers and then break the numbers up to add the hyphens back in at the appropriate places.

Find And Replace Phone Numbers
I have a bunch of phone numbers that I'm trying to reformat.

Say I wanted to replace any phone number like this: 1##########

With this: ##########

Keeping the numbers intact, just getting rid of the 1 in front of them. Can't figure it out for the life of me.

Columns To Phone Numbers Format
Just got an answer to my phone number problem of converting two columns of numbers
to a single columns with the form XXX-XXXXXXX. Used =A1 & "-" & B1.

Works perfectly one one spread sheet and not at all in another.

When I enter the formula and hit return, instead of the correct result, all I get is the formula.

The format of the columns is the same on both spread sheets.

Formula Or Macro To Fix Phone Numbers
I came up with this formula trying to fix phone number but itís not working properly

=TEXT(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(a1, "-", "") & "00##", 10), "###-###-00##")

So basically I need a formula or macro that will fix the phone number for me.
Here is an example
78512312 it should be like this 785-123-0012


785123123 it should be like this 785-123-0123. So if Len is 8 numbers long then insert two zeros counting from right to left. So if Len is 9 numbers long then insert one zeros counting from right to left.

Using Vlookup To Find Phone Numbers Online

Finding Country Based On Phone Numbers
I have a list of mobile phone numbers from various countries. However, I do not know which country each entry is from. Ideally I would like to have a macro that looks at each number, compares to a global list of PSTN structure to determine which part of the phone number is the country code (generally the first 1-3 digits), and then put the country in a separate column.

I am certain all numbers are formatted correctly, so it is only a matter of finding out which part is the country code and putting a value for the country.

The mobile phone number formula would count the number of indervidual mobile phone numbers in a list that contain 077 and 078 and 079.

The email formula would count the number of indervidual email addresses in a list that contain com or co dot uk

Both lists may contain random junk text, like in the email list some one may have entered words like 'no email address' etc.

Extract Numbers From Text Into A Matrix
I have a large number of text strings representing chemical formulas. They include letters for the element names and numbers for the number of atoms of each type.
For example:


The element name has either one or 2 letters (one capital, one small), if there is no number and no small letter after the capital letter that means that there is only one atom of this sort(like in C18H35NO3 - there is one N atom). If the element is not listed in the text string it means that it is not found in that particular formula (i.e. the numerical value is 0). Is there any function that could help converting such a vector (say A1:A3) into a matrix that will have the following form:

C H N O S Na
18 35 1 3 0 0
4 7 0 0 1 0
11 16 0 2 0 1

Extract Numbers From Alphanumeric Strings
I have this formula that extracts numbers from alphanumeric strings.

However this extracts only the 1st instance of the numbers

In a string like 123avfbsdf4556.. it'll extract only 123.

My questions are the following:

1. Is there a way that i could get the result as 1234556

2. A way which refers to a cell where I put in a number and it'll extract those many number instances. In the above example, if I put the number as 1, it'll extract 123. If I put the number as 2, it'll extract 4556 and so on.

I guess this would require some modifications to the Match function so that it does not look at only the 1st instance.

How To Extract Column Numbers From One Cell
I a simple macro below that loops through columns and copies a value from each column. The columns to loop through are specified in cells F2,F3,F4 which contain numbers indicating the column number (currently 1, 4 and 7).

Sub Testing()
'For i = 2 To 4
Cells(6, i).Copy
Range("h100").End(xlUp).Offset(1, 0).Select
Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Next i
End Sub

However, I would like to specify the column numbers in one cell instead across multiple cells. So, for example in cell H2 I could specify each column number separated by a comma
i.e. H2 would show: 1,4,7

Is there a way I could get the macro to reference that once cell only for the column numbers instead of in separate cells as currently? I'm assuming I need to use some clever text functions to extract each column number from the cell based on the comma delimiter and then feed into the macro?

I found something that's smart enough to look for ONLY ALPHA and strip those out and place them into one column. =LEFT(A1,MIN( FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))-1)

* I need something that's smart enough to look for ONLY NUMERIC. no matter how long the string is...and place those in Column C (like I mention in the example at the top).

Extract Numbers For Square Footage Calculation
I'm a new member to the forum and have a question about extracting numbers from a string for a square footage calculation. I am trying to extract the two numbers of varying length on either side of an "x" within an alphanumeric string. As you can see from below, the only constant is that each string will contain an "x" (assume there will be no other "x"'s in the string). I am trying to achieve the following:

A1 = 36.5 x 112 --> B1 = 36.5, C1 = 112
A2 = 36.5x112 --> B2 = 36.5, C2 = 112
A3 = 36.5' x112 --> B3 = 36.5, C3 = 112
A4= 36.5'x112.5' --> B4 = 36.5, C4 = 112.5
A5= abc123 36 x 112.5' --> B5 = 36, C5 = 112.5

If there is a non-VBA code fix, that would be preferable (mix of MID,FIND,MATCH functions...?), but I am okay with some basic VBA.

Extract 1st And 2nd Character Into Seperate Cells
I am attempting to make a macro for. It requires me to scan a column of cells worth of data (characters) for parts of what they contain and place those parts into a variable or string so that I can use an IF statement to place text in another cell.

I used to know someone who could do this via VBA, but I have been unable to reach him.

This sheet is fairly basic. The cells to be scanned are all in one column, they are all four digit numbers and I need to read the first two digits into separate variables.

Example: If the cell has "4101" in it, I want to be able to read the first digit "4" into one variable and the second digit "1" into another variable.

This way I can place text based on either one of those digits into the next cell over with an IF statement and can enclose it into a large loop to do the entire column.
